Peace


  Another month has just about gone by already, but I made a Christmas card to participate in the July Rudolph Days before they close at the end of the month.

My card started with a SU! Lovely as a Tree stamp set, stamping the tree image 3 times with wild wasabi ink, and coloring in the trunk with a SU! crumb cake marker. I wrapped a piece of wasabi stitched ribbon around the lower portion and tied a piece of neutral twine into a little bow. The panel was matted with kraft cardstock. The 2 green panels are matted with white, and I used a darker green Bazzill Basics cardstock that was done with a SU! square lattice ef for a bit of contrast. The 3 little golden accents are Geo Sparkler stickers. The peace sentiment is by MB and a prize I was lucky enough to win in the May Rudolph Days! 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic day!

Popping in to do some quick commenting Carol as I don't know when I will get back to blogging and commenting regularly. Love this Christmas card! Because I'm such a fan of pine tree stamps. lol I love the embossing and I really need to use this embossing folder more often-well all my embossing folders more often. Love that tree stamp too and the die cut peace. Beautiful card all the way around! Hugs, Brenda
